Wensleydale Raw Fleece Spinning Fiber Doll Hair. I won this fleece at the auction held at the 2014 National Western Stock Show. This Wensleydale wool comes from an ewe sheared in January 2014 from a ranch in Oregon. The locks are about 6" to 8" long with crimp and is just beautiful. The locks will take dye well too.
As the tips contain some vegetable matter and are slightly yellow I am assuming this sheep was not coated. The locks can be washed individually to be used as doll hair. If spinning the fibers we would suggest combing the locks as the fibers are so long that they may not work well in a drum carder. We recommend washing the fleece in hot water followed by a hot water rinse to remove the lanolin from the fiber. The last photos show the fleece when washed and then spun into yarn.
Please convo with any questions especially if you are new to cleaning wool.
